The founder of Alec Bradley Cigars, Alan Rubenstein, found a deep passion for cigars as an adult consumer at the early ages of 31 and then pursued it as a career. After completing college, Rubinstein joined his father in the then famous hardware-imports company that he eventually sold to his dad in 1996 after several years of successful expansion. Since that time, the company has grown into one of the top brands in the cigar-smoking world by offering its top quality cigars at prices most cigars enthusiasts can afford. Cigars from this brand are recognized around the world as top-grade cigars, particularly the Connecticut-graded cigars. If you would like to buy Alec Bradley Cigars online try El Cigar Shop.

The company's Connecticut wrappers are a favorite among cigar enthusiasts. It is made using a variety of tobacco blends and a unique humidor-like box that makes it easy to store. This Connecticut flagship brand is made with the highest quality tobacco leaves and wrapped in a medium-to-tight medium-bleed cedar wood wraparound. The strength varies depending on the blend and it is packaged in four Cigar Boxes.
Another brand of cigars produced by Alec Bradley is the Underdog. Like other Alec Bradley cigars, this is a medium-bodied full-bodied blend of strong tobacco with a complex floral and citrus flavor. It has hints of spice and hay, as well as traces of nut and pepper. A smooth, medium-bodied ash body develops with every puff and the finish is long and earthy.
For those who love the full-bodied profile of the Viaje Habano, the Lost Art cigars from Alec Bradley would be a great choice. The blend starts out with a medium-bodied Connecticut shade Maduro, then it transitions to a medium flaring Habano Connecticut grade wrapper. It ends out with a medium-blended smoke with some soft spice and cedar accents. The strength finishes out at an impressive full-bodied level.
For anyone looking for a full-bodied Connecticut shade cigar with top-notch flavor and aroma, the Banker's cigars might be the ones they are looking for. These cigars are made with the same high quality as the others, but they use a different fermentation method, which produces a distinct flavor. The blend is rich and powerful, with notes of coffee, chocolate, and a touch of pepper. A medium-full ash flavor develops on the first few minutes and stays mainly on the end for the remainder of the cigar. There is some subtle complexity added to the final moments, but overall the flavor of Banker's cigars is one of the best you can get.
You cannot go wrong with a Connecticut-grade cigar and a Banker's cigar. They deliver a consistently great product with incredible burn and sweetness. So if you have never tried a Connecticut shade wrapper, then make sure you do because you will not be disappointed.
